What We Believe

The Arizona Association for Foster and Adoptive Parents was founded in 2003 to serve the foster, adoptive and kinship families who care for  Arizona’s most vulnerable children. We are all volunteers, and all foster and adoptive parents.

We believe there is strength in numbers, and in speaking with one voice for Arizona’s foster and adoptive families. Please join us and help to make all of us stronger and better in our service to the children in Arizona!


AZAFAP invites all foster, adoptive and kinship families to join our Association for FREE. Premier memberships, that include extra member benefits, are available per couple or individual membership.


Working in partnership with child welfare professionals and the community, our purpose is to support, educate, empower and provide a unified voice for Arizona’s foster and adoptive families, with the goal of increasing the well-being and stability of Arizona’s most vulnerable children.
